Just reposting the message so that it ensures that niantic read the message and get informed that there is a HUGE BUG!
In accordance with this suggestion, we must get a response on any indication that is not approved, just as it is in English for all requests from any country.
Now Niantic remove about general business if wayspot dont follow criteria and are general business. Please bring it back. Now i must use dont follow criteria.
I will stop submiting new pokestops from now on until they fix the BUG mentioned above. Every Submission got rejected without any reason. I will also stop using wayfarer because it makes no sense to me thath only people with english game get the rejection reasons. Consider this bug may the reason why so many people submit pois that not fit into any criteria. @NianticCasey-ING PLEASE SHOW US THE REJECTION REASONS IN ENGLISH ON THE WAYFARER WEBSITE. THANK YOU!
I would like a new chance to be evaluator because only two chances are really unfair. Please.
@NianticCasey-ING I posted a detailed topic about the rejections issues last August and I received any response: https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/6301/no-rejections-reasons-for-french-players#latest
Let us know your position about this problem.
Is there an Issue Tracker or Support E-Mail where we can submit/send this issue?

My question even made it in the November AMA. But the Nia Team changed my question from more languages to more specific reasons. Sad but true. My question why and whats the answer to the original question got ignored.
If Niantic could itself boost this update which will 'boost votes in dry areas', and bring it to us by Christmas that would be phenomenal. It is obstucting us from doing our duty of making the real environment playable through AR.
Though a Pokemon native since the monochrome days, I now play in one of these "vote arid" area. I'm intimately familiar with the guidelines and am submitting for all I am worth, in a heroic attempt to jump start the creation of a playable ar environment in my city(a continental capital), but I'm just about the only reviewer, with maybe one part-time exception.
If Niantic could itself boost this part of the update, and bring it to us by Christmas, that would be great.
Thats sad. Why the hell they are not willing to tell us the rejection reasons. And why they do not reply here. Anyway, i stopped using wayfarer until the fix it, i'm also not contributing any more new stops.
I have just created a new discussion about it. Hope it gets approved soon.
@LukeAllStars-PGO Maybe we could open a Bug, and collecting there the posts. Than Niantic had to read it presumably.
I just rejected a McDonald's (and no, not the one with live gators, or the one with blue arches, just a McDonald's) and yesterday rejected three Costco's.
There definitely needs to be some better messaging about bigger chain stores/restaurants.
Why has the area for bonus location reviews been shrunk?
I'll be honest. I'm totally put off from even bothering to add new waypoints because despite following the instructions and picking things that are unique and fun (as opposed to spots convenient to my location) they've all gotten rejected for incorrect reasons.
A sculpture of a cow for not being a man made object. (and also for being temporary, despite being there for three years)
A historical sign on a public building on town property for being a private residence.
And a church for being not actually there (its been open since 2012 and appears on google)
I've also spent countless hours reviewing, providing thoughtful comments and fact checking on google, which clearly other folks are not doing.
This system is flawed, and I dont know how to fix it.
the system isnt flawed, it is broken. Niantic wouldnt admit that, and just tells us that there are / were "hickups".
But, Visually Unique relates to whether there are a few...not whether you think it's pretty or not....
I beg to differ.
Does the nomination stand out from its surroundings? Wayspots that are easy to locate and visually distinct from the buildings and objects nearby make high-quality Wayspots and should be rated highly. If you think the nomination looks bland and will be hard to locate, give it a lower rating."
I think it needs to be a requirement from those rejecting pokestops to add their personal view as to why they're rejectin instead of just a tick box, maybe 100 characters long. If the reviewer can't think of a reason then it may encourange them to review the POI in more detail.
A visually unique nomination should not be something that is common in the area.
Community Hall is still missing from the category list
when you guys think gonna approve my nomination
You should review the nomination criteria
